About this item

If we follow the neoliberal script, we’re all consumers, happily salving our discontent in a hypermarket where money is the only language. For the majority of the people in the world, however, that image translates into a much less pleasant reality: a precarious and impoverished life.

Is there a way to break free of that worldview? Yes, says William K. Carroll, and Expose, Oppose, Propose shows how. Detailing the work over the past four decades of transnational alternative policy groups (TAPGs), Carroll shows how these think tanks have generated ideas and resources for resistance through dialogue with the social movements that are on the forefront of the battle for global justice. He offers close analyses of a number of groups, showing how each is distinct and autonomous, but he also pulls back to examine the larger framework in which all the groups operate, one that advocates and envisions true alternatives for global society.
